Take a Stand- Tell Colbert SuperPAC: FREE Vanunu! FREE Gaza Palestine!

Last week Stephen Colbert challenged the Colbert Nation to Take a Stand.

(NEW YORK) - Comedy Central's own Stephen Colbert was approved by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on June 30 for Colbert SuperPAC, now called "Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow."

The political action committee will allow him to raise unlimited amounts of money from corporations, unions and individuals to support or oppose candidates in the 2012 elections, legally of course, joining about 100 other superPACs in the United States. His is the arguably the most unique.

Now he has asked our citizenry, "What do you stand for?"

Take a moment to ponder, you do stand for something, correct? You know the old adage...if you don't stand for something, you'll stand for anything. Don't let that be you.

We accepted the challenge, and the Salem-News.com Nation (SNc Nation) has visited Colbert's special PAC site: SuperPAC.

We submitted this message, and encourage you to join our SNc Nation by doing the same:
FREE VANUNU
FREE Gaza Palestine

This effort may be an integral move in waking up the nation. Taking a Stand takes guts, and thoughtfulness- but it's a terrific chance to be heard, and in less than 30 seconds.

Here is what Stephen Colbert wrote last week:

Dear Colbert Super PAC Members and Electoral Uruk-hai,

On June 29th, I sent out a call. A call for all heroes to come together under the banner of Colbert SuperPAC, put some money in a hat, and then leave. And you came: over 120,000 of you joined with the goal of Making a Better Tomorrow... Tomorrow.

But now, Tomorrow is only a Day away. The Time has come to take a Stand. For Something. We haven’t figured out what It is yet. That’s where You come in.

Go to bit.ly/PACstand and share what matters to you most, whether it’s ending poverty, designing a truly zombie-proof fortress or preserving poverty. Everything is on the table-even tables.

Your concerns will be scientifically blended with the concerns of other Colbert SuperPAC members, then formed into a nutritious concern loaf for me to cram down Washington’s gullet.

It’s like a reverse orchestra, where you’re all the conductors and I’m the one musician, armed with an FEC-sanctioned violin made of money. Or maybe an oboe – that’s up to you. You’ve made your money-voice heard, now make your mouth-voice heard. Visit bit.ly/PACstand today…now.

Why are you still here?

Sinceriously,

Stephen Colbert

President and Chieftain of the Dúnedain, Colbert Super PAC

On May 21st, Salem-News.com writer Eileen Fleming spent an evening with Helen Thomas [An Evening with Helen Thomas and Flashback to John Lennon and Vanunu Mordechai]; she told Helen that one of her dreams is to appear on The Colbert Report.

Ms. Thomas smiled and replied, “That’s toxic.”

Ms. Thomas and Eileen will be conversing again this Friday, August 5th, noon until 2PM at republicbroadcasting.org with host Deanna Spingola, www.Spingola.com

Indeed, Eileen Fleming is deadly serious about reaching Stephen and also Jon Stewart, for another of her dreams is that Jon would read and discuss her third book, BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu’s FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010.

She is an outgoing activist, speaking up on Youtube, and also visiting bit.ly/PACstand, and wrote: "If I can’t laugh it’s not my REVOLUTION."

Eileen Fleming is the founder of WeAreWideAwake.org and currently a Candidate for the House of Representatives.

There is only one message per email address accepted at the Colbert SuperPAC site, so here’s hoping you too will make your mouth-voice heard and help Eileen get some of that Colbert SuperPAC money to help fund her run as a Citizen of CONSCIENCE for House of Representatives 2012, and Eileen says, "we the people will take back The House."

This is your chance to stand and be counted. Please submit your message to Stephen Colbert right away, Eileen needs your support!

Take that stand, begin here: bit.ly/PACstand.
